The next day in New Orleans....
We got kinda used to this "drinks on the go" thing. Makes for quite a pleasant commute!
What a gem!
long line of hungry people
a pile of meat and gritswe stumbled upon a veteran swing dancing extravaganza near the WWII Museum
they've got moves!

Accompanied by a delicious malbec and French pinot noir
poured by a cool rocker girl with amazing tattoos
Our last stop of the night was one of the oldest bars in New Orleans,
We said goodbye to New Orleans and set our coordinates for
Fort Walton Beach, FL
(take note of red mountain dew)
This is where Marc's Mountain Dew Obsession began.
It started out with original mountain dew, then the "throwback mountain dew",
code red, code orange, I think maybe even a code blue
may have gotten thrown in there.
He was becoming a mountain dew addict!
hello again, weird Mississippi
a mad storm!
Hello Mobile, Alabama
Marc and my pops!
we did cannonballs in the pool!
I made an old-fashioned southern breakfast in mama cast's kitchen
these are pancakes
ON THE ROAD AGAIN
Destination: Savannah, Georgia!
After a long drive we found a La Quinta Inn outside of Savannah at about 130am
this is what happens after a long day of driving and you find a Denny's and a bottle
We walked around downtown and saw some fun spectacles:
We saw a squirrel getting his eat on with a cheezit
look at this beautiful tree!
I almost broke it!
it's yoga time
crazed squirrel #2, probably looking for the cheezit
we walked along the harbor

she told us she didn't like new york

shops along the harbor
And more cemeteries!

On our way to Raleigh, NC
We took a happy accident going the wrong way over the bridge!
it was so lovely we couldn't complain!
someone got a little sun in Savannah
a wifebeater tan!
About 3 hours south of Raleigh we start seeing crazy billboard signs
for South Of The Border, a Mexican-style amusement park
that looks like it was built by someone taking hallucinogenic drugs
he's just so round!
ol crazy horse
Fort Pedro takes toilet time very seriously
At last, Raleigh, North Carolina!
Welcome to John's House
Keats, the coolest dog ever!
Perhaps the most technological beer funnel made by man:
we ended up at Raleigh Times
the infamous bottle of whiskey

John in his cool ride
Where'd you get that jeep........the toilet store?
The next day was a little rough around the edges
except for these two, chummy fruitcakes at the diner
YUM! We are alive again!
questionable snackage in Raleigh
Marc got a new cell phone and I got to try Sasquatch beef jerky for the first time!
Thanks for having us John!
On the road again

I was still hard times from the night before
Once I said it out loud it reminded Marc of one of his favorite
places to eat in D.C.:
that was our first stop in D.C.

This bar had an amazing dj and
serves pho dogs:

be in D.C. with Andrew
Can you see us? We're at the bottom!
What a column!
